Instructions on Applying the Swarovski Crystals to your Bikini 

STEP 1: Place Swarovski Flat Backs Hotfix style 2078 onto the bikini. Place a transfer film on top of the Swarovski Crystals and iron the transfer film to adhere the crystals onto the bikini. Gently pull the transfer film back. If any of the crystals do not stick, replace transfer film and iron once more.

If you are applying Swarovski Crystals to bathing suits that are not breathable, then it is best to use the Non Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones and use the E6000 glue. The Crystal Katana is a fabulous tool that will pick up the Crystal Rhinestones and place them exactly where you want them. It’s a dream tool and will make your life and Flatback projects soooooo much easier!

Hope you have fun enhancing your bathing suits this summer!

Now it’s time to lose the phone, hit the beach, and chill!!

Love in Every Bead ~ A Special Mother’s Day Necklace Design Inspiration!

Happy Mothers Day Love

Here’s one of my most cherished pictures of my wonderful Mom and I

Mother’s Day is that extra special time to reflect on the love and caring nature Mother’s give to their children. I feel incredibly lucky to have a mother who continues to be there for me and love me unconditionally. It’s the absolute greatest gift in the world and I’m always humbled by the power of love.

Happy-Mothers-Day-Tag-With-Flowers

This beautiful quote by Yogananda expresses the divine quality of a Mother’s love;

“The Mother’s love is not given to us to spoil us with indulgence, but to soften our hearts, that we may in turn soften others with kindness.”

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, I made a special Swarovski Crystal and Pearl necklace for my Mom to honor and celebrate everything she means to me. She is always so sweet in loving everything I make her.

Swarovski_5741_Crystal_Heart_Beads_Blush_Rose

For Easter, I made her a sparkling Swarovski Crystal bracelet with spring tones and she wore it for a week straight. My Dad said she wore it on their nature walks and she would say “Harmony’s coming on the walk with us“. That literally melted my heart! I just thought that was the absolute sweetest! I pour my heart and energy into making jewelry for my friends and family and for my Mom to feel closer to me through the jewelry I make her, is incredibly touching.

Here’s the Swarovski Crystal and Pearl tassel necklace I made this Mother’s Day. I hope this design inspires you to make something extra special for your Mom, or if you’re a Mom who loves to make jewelry, it’s time to treat yo’ self!

Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel Necklace Design Inspiration wholesale Crystal Beads from Rainbows of Light

Stylish Trend Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel Necklace

I wanted to make a soft and elegant necklace that had a touch of whimsical style. I Looooved how it turned out, I made one for myself too  🙂

Swarovski_Pearls_5810_Crystal_Pearls_Platinum

The style 5810 wholesale Swarovski Pearls that I used were in the color Platinum. Platinum is a wonderful neutral tone that goes with just about everything and even better, you can pair it with Gold or Silver tones and it looks beautiful with both!

You can even mix the goldish hues of the Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow, with the light silver tones of Crystal Silver Shade together and it looks dreamy!

My Mom wears gold, so I made her’s with gold accents and mine with silver accents.

I mostly used the 5810-6mm and 8mm sized Swarovski Pearls and the 3mm and 4mm in one area for a tiny graduation up from the Crystal beads.

Swarovski_5058_Baroque_Beads_Crystal_Golden_Shadow

I especially wanted to incorporate the new Swarovski stylish 5058 Baroque Bead for it’s elegant and timeless shape. I used the 5058-10mm and 14mm Crystal Golden Shadow Baroque Beads as highlights, surrounded by style 5000-6mm and 8mm Round Beads and 5328-4mm and 6mm Bicone Beads all in the matching Crystal Golden Shadow effect.

I added some little gold flower elements to accentuated the Pearls and Crystals, which complimented the gold tones in the Swarovski Crystal Golden Shadow beautifully.

I finished off the necklace with a gold clasp and a tassel that matched the Platinum Pearl color perfectly! I found the tassel at my local Jo-Ann Fabric and craft stores not in the jewelry section, but in the fabric tassel section.

The last Crystal that I added at the bottom, for a nice touch of sparkle, was the 6871-28mm Swarovski Crystal Buddha Pendant in Crystal Silver Shade.

I hope this Mother’s Day Necklace Design has inspired you to make your Mom or yourself something beautiful to love, admire and enjoy!

Wishing you a day full of LOVE!

A Useful & Sparkling DIY Customized Gift Inspiration!

When dreams come true, it’s fun to celebrate with sparkles & smiles!

Recently my friend graduated culinary school and she now has the wonderful opportunity to take her skills to the gorgeous wonders of Spain! She’ll be living there for a few months, training under a 5 star chef. With incredible hard work and determination, her dreams are really and truly, coming to fruition. I couldn’t be happier for her!

Fiesta

She threw a fabulous tapas themed fiesta to celebrate and I wanted to give her something fun, special and sparkly (of course) to commemorate her BIG accomplishment! Here’s what I made her….

A customized sparkling apron featuring Swarovski Crystal Rhinestone Flatbacks!

I found a colorful apron from World Market. I just swoon over everything in that darn store, so I had to go in with a mission and not stray, because if I did, I would have been tempted to take home one of everything. Mission successfully completed!

I imagine aprons can take a beating with all that is going on in the kitchen and I wanted to be sure the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks would stay secure and last a very long time. In order to do this, I glued each crystal using E6000 glue.

Swarovski_Crystal_2088_Flatback_rhinestone_crystals_wholesale

I used the Swarovski Crystal 2088-12ss (~3mm) Clear Crystal Flatbacks

Crystal_Katana

I also used my handy-dandy Flatback Rhinestone tool, the Crystal Katana! This helps to pick up the stones, place them exactly where I want them and secure them in place. I couldn’t do this project with out it! That’s GOLD Jerry… GOLD! (haha…if you’re a long-time Seinfeld fan like myself, you’ll appreciate that reference 😉

How to glue crystals to clothing instructions 1

I arranged the Swarovski Crystals in little flower formations, with different quantities in each floret, randomly on the belt of the apron. I wanted to compliment the flower pattern on the apron, as well as accentuating hints of sparkle.

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_2

It’s simple and sweet, and complimented her style beautifully!

Thankfully, she Loved it! She put it on and wore it around, showing all her friends, which warmed my heart & was very sweet of her!

If you’re thinking of a little gift for someone in your life, keep in mind that it doesn’t need to be much, but it’s always much more appreciated when you add a personal touch. When you put a little extra time and effort into making something handmade from your heart, it demonstrates how much you care, which is touching in and of itself.

2 DIY Tips You Need to Know When Embellishing Your Winter Hat with Swarovski Crystals!

free-swarovski-crystal-fashion-design-winter-cap-crystalized

Free DIY Design on Embellishing Your Winter Hat with Swarovski Crystals 

For those of you enjoy winter outdoor adventures, this cozy Après Ski hat DIY design inspiration is chic as well as warm. Simply glue or sew Swarovski Crystal Pearls and Flat Back Hotfix Rhinestones around the turn-up, and you’ll sparkle on the slopes!

It doesn’t matter whether you ski (or snowboard) like an Olympian, flop around like a snow bunny, or stick strictly to “meet me by the fire” for fun social encounters, you’ll still need to defrost with cozy knits that are chic and practical.

Winter pom-pom hats are very popular these days to keep your head warm and cozy. It’s a whole lot more fun to wear things that have your own personalized style infused in them. Put your fashion stamp on your winter hat by sprinkling it with Swarovski Crystals to stand out from the crowd.

free-diy-design-swarovski-crystal-fashion-design-winter-cap-crystalized

This DIY fashion design is easy as pie to make…easier than making pie, really. Swarovski makes Flatback Crystals that have glue that has been pre-applied to the back for easy application. These Flatback Crystals are called Hot Fix Stones. Simply create a design by placing the Hot Fix Crystals where you want them and apply your heated Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool directly on top of the stones for a minute. Simple as that!

2 Handy Application Tips: 

1. Don’t Get Stuck Doing This – Place a piece of cardboard underneath the the portion of the fabric where the Crystals will be glued to. This way you don’t glue both sides of the hat together 🙂

2.  Don’t Ruin Your Fabric – The Bejewler Pro Hot Fix Tool has different interchangeable size tips for the various size Flatbacks. Use a one size smaller tip than the Flatback Stone itself, this way you won’t burn the edges of your fabric. (you probably won’t burn the fabric, but I always like to let people know about this encase they are using the Bejewler Pro Hot Fix tool on nice or sensitive fabric such as a wedding dress).
